Lion Forge have announced a partnership with the Book Industry Charitable Foundation to donate $25,000 towards disaster relief for comic book retailers who were hit by Hurricane Harvey, which caused massive flooding and devastation in Texas and the Gulf Coast last week.
“As a publisher, we have a responsibility to the comic book community from our fans to our retail partners” said Lion Forge founder, David Steward II. “A healthy retailer community means a healthy industry, and when a specific area of the industry is struggling, it affects all of us. We urge our fellow publishers with the means to join us in providing support to comic book stores in Texas and the gulf coast affected by the storm with a donation to the designated Emergency Assistance relief fund, at the Book Industry Charitable Foundation.”
“During this time of catastrophe and urgent need we are honored to work with Lion Forge to help comic book shop employees now and in the future” added Pamela French, Executive Director of the Book Industry Charitable Foundation. “We are grateful for their support of comic book sellers.”
